Whether you live in Cat Mountain, Arboretum, So-Fi, The Drag, Onion Creek, or another neighborhood, there will be plenty of delicious spots to try. Somewhere to enjoy brunch is almost guaranteed to be within walking distance of your new apartment rental.

1. Emmer & Rye

Those taking care of a home renovation in Town Lake should definitely consider Emmer & Rye for brunch. Be sure to opt for Sunday brunch to take advantage of the pastry cart and full array of brunch choices. Choose from such dishes as scrambled eggs with relish and crème fraiche, yellow corn grits with shrimp, pork belly English muffins with fried eggs, and fried egg toast. There are also all the brunch drinks you could want, including mimosas with fresh-squeezed orange juice and brunch punch.

2. Fonda San Miguel

If you are in the mood for a unique brunch option, head to Fonda San Miguel in Rosedale. Although it is a bit more expensive than some of the other choices on the list, the brunch menu will help you refuel so you can tackle your leftover moving boxes. The North Loop restaurant has served the Austin community for 40 years with a hacienda style. The menu features authentic Mexican dishes from the states of Veracruz, Yucatan, Puebla, and Oaxaca. It only opens for brunch on Sunday, so plan accordingly.

3. Jack Allen’s Kitchen

Within the Oak Hill neighborhood, Jack Hill’s Kitchen is a local favorite, particularly for its desserts. If you have room after your brunch, get DeeDee’s Chocolate Bomb, a pie, cobbler, or cake. You deserve it after organizing all those storage bins for your move. The ingredients are locally sourced for a truly delicious experience. You will find traditional brunch options, including choices for those who prefer breakfast and those who like lunch. Best of all, Jack Hill’s Kitchen offers a brunch buffet, so you can try everything.

4. Odd Duck

Those in Bouldin or the surrounding areas should consider brunching at Odd Duck, where you can relax and enjoy a meal without stressing about home organization or any other aspect of moving. The menu is frequently adjusted, but the burger is always worth a try. It features a chuck-eye roll, Richardson Farm brisket, fried egg pimento, house-made bacon rillettes, and tobacco onions.

5. Stella Public House

Stella Public House in Mueller has brunch on both Saturdays and Sundays, letting you try some of the restaurant’s signature wood-fired pies or breakfast dishes, like pancakes, skillets with potato and speck, and stuffed French toast. Many of the dishes are even wood-fired for a unique flavor you won’t forget. Don’t worry about what to drink; the Bloody Marys are delicious.
